Jared Tebo, in his first race since returning to Kyosho, TQ’ed and captured top honors in the truck class with his Team Orion-powered ST-RR. The Toys for Tots benefit race at Thunder Alley RC Raceway is a one-day event intended to raise funds and collect toys to benefit less fortunate children. Tebo got off to a rough start, catching a rut and flipping over in the first turn, moving him back to last place on the first lap but he quickly worked his way back through traffic and was able to regain the lead within just a few minutes. Although there were a couple close challenges for the lead during the crossover of pit stops, Tebo cruised to a comfortable win nearly half a lap ahead of 2nd place. In the buggy class, Tebo, who started from third, made his way to the lead and was able to hold it for most of the shortened 15 minute main. A slight mistake at the end of the run allowed Truhe to pass with little time to regain the lead. Tebo held on to second place over the hard charging Cody King, who finished 3rd.
